Thread: Seljuk Maces

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Seljuk Maces

    Here are three contemporary images that include an asymmetrical mace, probably known as the qurz from the 12th-13th centuries. This was probably the forebear of the animal-headed mace of later centuries.


    A Shahnama scene "The Iranians leave the castle of Farwad", on a Seljuk tile, Iran, 12th-13th centuries


    Faridun and Kawad, Seljuk Bowl, Incribed "Wealth", early 13th Century


    King with attendants, Seljuk Bowl, late 12th early 13th centuries AD

    & drawings of two surviving maces:

    366. Iron mace-head, 11th to 13th centuries AD, Iranian, British Museum no. 838.89, London.

    Ok, here's a different question then from yesterday's that you ignored: do you interact in this forum or just post these "informative" emails?

    Sasanian bull-headed mace & Scepter in the shape of a bull's head
    Bull- (or cow-) headed maces are mentioned in the Shahnama. This may have influenced later maces.

    I've yet to see any evidence of it, just this picture spam filling up this forum, not that it matters since I'm the only one currently actively talking about actual game play. So he's free to spam up the place with this pointless non-sense if he likes as long as the mods don't care, and given how far back this spam goes I think it's safe to assume they don't.

    That however does not actually change the entire purpose of this forum, which is player discussion of the actual game itself.
